She may not have gotten the role of Eponine in 'Les Miserables', but Taylor Swift still might have a big movie project after all. She is reportedly the front-runner to play legendary folk singer Joni Mitchell in a movie adaptation of the book, 'Girls Like Us'. I think that she actually might be more in her comfort zone in this role than Eponine. What do you all think?

I generally like Taylor Swift and I absolutely love Joni Mitchell...but I'm not sure about this.
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being. ``oscar wilde``

Can someone teach her how to act? The one thing I saw her in (that gawd-awful Valentine's Day) she was gawd-awful.

^ I thought she was great as the voice of Audrey in 'The Lorax' and I really enjoyed her appearances on 'Saturday Night Live'.

She can't act. She can't sing live. Bad move.

I know that not everyone likes her voice, but I have seen her perform live twice. The first time was on her Fearless Tour and the other time was at the 2011 CMA Awards and I thought she was great both times.

I have only seen her sing live on awards shows and never have I thought she sounded good.

Alison Pill as Carole King? Did they also audition Betty White?

They need a Jewish girl for Carole King. They should have at least tried for Lea Michele.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Pill can act and I am pretty sure played her own instruments (albeit as a drummer) and vocals for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

If only Sissy Spacek could go back in a time machine and play Mitchell. She'd be perfect.

They need to find a fine actress to honor Joni-no Taylor Swift. Can Judy Greer sing?

I heard this and immediately thought that I could never picture Taylor Swift being loved so naughty she goes weak in the knees.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.
